How does trenchless sewer line repair work?

Instead of digging a large trench around a faulty pipe to repair it, trenchless sewer line repair – also referred to as trenchless pipe repair – makes it possible for sewer repair specialists to repair or replace your sewer pipes without damaging your lawn. While there will still be some digging involved, the destruction to the surrounding surface area will be minimal. This means more money in your pockets, which is why more and more property owners are opting for this option.

Before any digging begins, sewer line specialists first assess the extent of the damage by running a long flexible pipe down a drain inside your home to inspect the pipe. At the tip of the pipe is a camera which allows the plumber to see where the damaged area is. Once the damaged area has been located, the sewer line specialist will determine where the sewer pipe can be accessed at the shallowest point. Most times, this is either in the basement or some area close to the home. Then, a hydro-jetter is used to flush out the host pipe, and a mechanical plumbing snake clears out any remaining debris.

The sewer line is then repaired, or replaced if it is damaged beyond repair by lowering a pipe cutting head directly into the pipe, which drags the new pipe in after it.

How to know when trenchless sewer line repair is necessary

Although sewer pipes tend to last for a long time, weather and other environmental elements cause pipes to deteriorate over time.

You may be in need of trenchless sewer line repair or replacement if you notice the following signs:

  • A foul odor in your yard – a sign of raw sewage passing through a broken sewer line will seep through the cracked area and make its way to the surface.
  • Unusual gurgling sounds in your bathroom, or sludge in the bathtub or sink – these are telltale signs that your sewer line may need repair.

If you notice any of these signs, call a sewer line professional immediately. Delaying may result in serious damage to your yard and property. In most cases, trenchless sewer line repair can be used to remedy such issues.
